Trance-Scriptions: The collected Soul Group Messages sessions
Part III: The Lighted Path and Darkened Hearts
We are frequently made aware, via the considerable volume of positive feedbackwe regularly receive, that the information from Joseph and his soul group gathered together as the Joseph Communications series of bookshas provided readers of those books with a great deal of comfort over the years, explaining concisely and precisely as it does our spiritual origins, our creative potential as beings of Light and our unbreakable connection to the Divine. Additionally, the Communications assure us that there is no death but, instead, an ongoing journey into higher vibrational dimensions of ever-increasing beauty, joy and potential.
It should be noted, however, that an equally important function of the Joseph Communications is to act as a much-needed wake-up call for humanity, bringing into sharp focus the missteps we have/are taking as a society and the resulting problems in our world at present. Pointing these things out is not a criticism from the soul group, but rather a ‘call to action’, stressing that the increasing difficulties we find ourselves experiencing worldwide can only be transformed if we each do something – if we each draw on our personal power as spirits to restore nobler energies and values to this level of reality – and that the time remaining grows short in which we can and must effect positive change here.
The following trance session highlights the seriousness of our present situation but, as always, remedies it by advising us as to what, precisely, we can each do to redress the balance.
As with each of these transcriptions of filmed sessions, I have transposed the occasional word and removed any repetition acceptable in speech but less so in a text. These minimal adjustments aside, the following is a faithful transcription of the original video session.
* The points at which I drift in and out of a trance state throughout this session are indicated in the text.

Soul Group Messages – 3.
Spirit Communicators: ‘The Gentleman in Red’; ’The Persian Gentleman’.
Michael (connecting initially via a clairvoyant link):
I am tuning in to two souls – two people – who have been with me for a few minutes now. There is our old friend the Persian Gentleman, who today is dressed in a gold robe with an overlaying pattern. He always has a[n intricate] pattern over his robes; they are exquisite to see. I wish I could describe them to you in detail. There is also a gentleman here I haven’t seen before, who is dressed in red… and there is a similar pattern to his robe. Both of these souls are of a very high vibration, and it is the Gentleman in Red who wishes to speak [first] today.
The Gentleman in Red:
He begins by talking about love openly, and by saying that his connection to each of you watching this video is through love, in that he loves you. He is not embarrassed to say that and says you shouldn’t be embarrassed to say it to anyone else. Every action you take should be based in love because love is the force that flows through us all. It is the creative force that we call ‘God’ or the energy that creates the universe and the dimensions within and outside the physical universe …above the physical universe, relatively speaking. But, he says, having connected in love with each of you, he wants to talk about the heart and about ‘the Lighted Path’, and about dark and Light.
He says there is no absence of Light except where it is omitted by choice. So, the natural energy that flows through each of us is Light.
The natural energy that connects us one to the other via our hearts is Light. But certain souls choose to exclude that Light, to omit that Light from their existence. And the minute they do so, through choice, there is a difference in vibration within their hearts between the Light that is trying to flow through them and their own consciousness. They lower their vibration, their personal vibration, by excluding the Light. And, as a result of doing so, that connection with the Light is stopped. A wall is put up. As a result of this, any vibration that is of a lower vibration than the Light connects with them via their hearts. So, instead of connecting with inspiration; instead of connecting with kindness, with a love for all humanity and a love for all creation, by choice they shut out that vibration – and that absence of the Light, via the wall they have put around their hearts, invites in …because there is a void there… invites in a similar vibration to the one they believe in …invites in a lower vibration.
Michael (at this point the communication switches to a trance link, with ‘the Gentleman in Red’ taking over):
Now, there are souls that are still learning, souls that are still evolving, but have not yet learned to reinstate the Light in their hearts: these are discarnate souls and these souls exist on lower vibrations of being. In those lower vibrations of being the only thing they care about is themselves and a supply of energy to themselves. That supply of energy – the thing they really need – is the Light. But they perceive it as something they need to take from others, something they have a deep yearning for and a lack of, but they don’t recognise it as the Light because they are still shutting out the Light. They know that they need, but they don’t know that what they need is the Light. As a result of this, the souls on those lower vibrations take from each other constantly. They look to each other as sources of energy to sustain themselves and nothing more. And their reason for being – their conscious reason for being at the moment – is to take and to survive.
Those on Earth that have invested in this darkness of the heart also invest in a connection – subconsciously, unknowingly – with every other soul that has a ‘darkness of the heart’. And so their lack, their wish to fulfil themselves and their realisation that something is missing, is amplified and magnified and magnified …but it is not magnified as a quest for the Light, it is magnified as a quest for more of the darkness that gives them such trouble. And so every soul that links into that ‘darkness of the heart’ magnifies that darkness of the heart and it becomes a presence within their heart, within their soul, that gives them constant unrest. It gives them a constant quest to be fulfilled with something that cannot fulfil them, so they seek to draw from others that which they think they need. But they are not drawing it on a spiritual level, they are drawing it on a material level. So, they wish to take others’ financial status; they wish to take others’ health; they wish to take others’ freedom of vision; they wish to take others’ right to choose, because then they feel they are being fed by what they desire, by the vibration they desire …not knowing that the vibration they truly desire as a spirit, as a soul, is Light and not darkness.
As I look at the Earth at the moment, I see great ‘holes’ in the flow of Light, one to another …great holes that affect not only the souls on Earth but the Earth itself – because these centres of darkness, of heart-darkness, actually draw from the Earth and generate around themselves pockets of negative vibration that affect the smooth flowing of Light, via the souls on Earth, to every part of the Earth.
You have souls on Earth that at the moment are feeding themselves on nothing, because the darkness fulfils nothing. The quest for power fulfils nothing. The quest for control fulfils nothing. It is a fool’s errand. It leads to more and more suffering, not just for those who they wish to control but for themselves! And when they leave the physical life, they find themselves in an area of darkness because they have excluded the Light. They are not being judged; they are not being condemned. We surround them with Love. But, of their own volition, they have placed themselves in a state of darkness that is self-perpetuating until they choose something else …until they seek a higher vibration.
Unfortunately – because of an exclusion of the Light; you could say because of an exclusion of God – those areas of darkness at present are growing because there is mind upon mind that accepts only the material, that seeks fulfilment only from the material, only from control, only from supposed power.
How do you tackle this? Because what I’ve presented to you is a dark scenario. If I am saying it’s getting worse, how do you make things better? Can you make things better?
Yes, you can!
Because the Light that connects you, one to another, and to the creative force that flows throughout the universe is far more powerful than the darkness. The temptation is always to say, ‘What can I do?’ or, ‘These people are so powerful,’ or, ‘I can’t resist this. I’ve got to fight it with anger or with a similar vibration of discontent.’
The way to combat the dark spots is to remember the pathway of Light; is to remember that, because you acknowledge the Light within you – within your heart; because you acknowledge that you are part of something greater; because you acknowledge that there is a creative force flowing through this universe that is goodness and love and creation – a positive creation – when you connect to that Light you are legion, you are powerful. And, it is the Light that needs to combat the darkness – not further darkness. The most powerful thing you can do is to put aside part of your day and during that period send out Light, direct it to those you can see suffering from a ‘heart of darkness’.
Use that pathway of Light that leads from you to every other soul, to every other Lighted-soul, and also upwards, relatively speaking, into higher dimensions of being …use that pathway to channel Light in. Allow Light to flow along that pathway, through you, to those who have not yet discovered the Light and surround them with it.
If there are figures you feel have hearts of darkness at the moment, visualise those figures in your imagination during your special time each day and flow that Light from your heart. See it beaming out to them, surrounding them, circling them from head to foot, so that they are encased in a sphere of bright, white Light. Don’t condemn. Don’t judge. Don’t question. Simply maintain that Light around them. That Light is strong enough to get in but it has to be provided. They cannot provide it for themselves – you have to provide it for them. Then cut the connection and get on with your day, asking that you be surrounded by Light as you do so.
If you do not, the dark spots will get darker and the dark spots will eventually consume this globe, so there will be a darkness and an absence of Light and God-knowledge around this planet. If you do it, and it takes [just] a little of your time, everything will change, because those with hearts of darkness cannot be powered by darkness if they are surrounded by Light.
The path of Light is available to each of you but you stand at a crossroads. You stand at the moment when you either choose to help and to do something and you change this planet back to what it is supposed to be and still is at heart, or you do nothing and the darkness spreads.
This is a serious message. This is a serious request. Forget what you are being told by the news; forget what you are being told by your neighbour who does not agree with your spiritual way, or by an organisation that has a completely opposing view to yours – remember the pathway of Light. That pathway of Light leads from the Divine through you as an angelic being – because that is what you truly are – and can and will change things, if you put aside the time to do this.
This is your planet. You originally created this planet. These are your brothers and sisters; they are part of the group that created this planet that, mistakenly, chose darkness rather than Light. This is your creation. But that creation can be either dark …or Light, according to your choice and your willingness to send out Light to infuse – re-infuse – this planet and those with hearts of darkness with that Light.
What are you going to do?
I must also speak about absence of Light leading to mistakes in thinking. Because absence of Light in a person’s heart is absence of an acknowledgement of there being a Divine force. When the Divine force flows through someone’s heart, when that Light flows through someone’s heart, the decisions they make are based on love; the decisions they make are based in the security of knowing that there is no lack, that there is nothing wrong, that there is only evolution of creation in a positive way. It is the displacement of an acknowledgement of the Divine through hearts of darkness that is causing the current situation around your world.
Look on a material level… Where has God gone? Where is God in your churches? Where is God in your decisions? Where is God in the way that you live every aspect of your life? Where is that partnership, that original partnership that flows through you? Where has it gone?
In pushing out God, in pushing out an acknowledgement of the Divine, you create the dark spots, you create the dark areas, you create the dark hearts; and the dark hearts seek other dark hearts and strengthen themselves. It is the same principle as with the Light. If the Light seeks the Light – you have more Light to combat the darkness.
But you must, please, do something! Each of you can do something – now! It doesn’t matter where you are, who you are, what you do, how you consider your life to be. You can be a vessel for that pathway of Light, a step in that pathway of Light. You can bring in the Light – channel that Light to chase away the darkness.
Those souls with hearts of darkness, both here on Earth and in the lower dimensions, have to work that darkness out of their lives before they can advance, before they can evolve. And you may have a very human response, saying, ‘Well, let them! Leave them there! They have created this darkness; they have created this chaos!’ But we can’t do that and we won’t do that because they are your brothers and sisters. They are equal parts, equal partners in the share of Divinity that you are; they have just lost their way.
If it takes a thousand years or a million years in terms of earthly time, they have to come out of that darkness. Better that they do it now! Better that they do it now and the Earth is repaired than them having to wait in a stasis state for millions of years until the Earth repairs itself with the help of deva activity and angelic activity. …And then they have to come back. And then they still have to work that darkness of their system. Isn’t it better that they do it now? Isn’t it better that you help them to do it now? I know it is difficult from your point of view. I know it is difficult not to be angry, not to be resentful, not to wish to get even with those that are disturbing your life to such a degree. But the way to ‘get even’, in a Divine sense, is to send the Light. The way to restore the balance is to send the Light. You do not fuel darkness with more darkness, you fuel it with Light.
We have discussed this – myself and my brother whom you call the Persian Gentleman – we have discussed this at length …how best to get this across to you. And the analogy we would like to use is that you could consider us to be the equivalent of parents …we are not [of course]… but consider us to be the equivalent of parents looking in on a creche where some of the souls are playing in the Light and playing with Light tools, and some, many, are playing with darkness. And we are gently advising, saying: ‘Don’t do that. There’s a different way. Put down that darkness and pick up the Light playthings. Do it this way.’ And we’re not having the response we need – not for us but for you! Please listen – not to us but to what is really going on in your heart. Make that move in meditation from your head to your heart daily, and see if what we are saying to you today rings true. If it doesn’t – throw it out, but if it does, please act on what we are saying.
It is a common theme we have brought to you, to say there is not much time left. There isn’t. There isn’t much time left to put things right in this particular cycle. If you lock yourself into the darkness, if you choose the darkness rather than the Light, then there is nowhere for you to go until you choose the Light. And, if you come to the point at which the Earth cannot sustain itself and ‘gives in’, as it were – is consumed by the darkness, where do you go? If you celebrate and worship and connect only with materiality in the darkness, where is there for you to go next? Nowhere! Which is why a stasis state would have to exist to bring back all those who celebrate nothing but darkness, to enable them within a physicality – which is the only thing they acknowledge, the only thing they can observe – to bring them back to try and get them to work themselves out of that darkness and to bring the Light in again. This is a serious state of affairs and not one we wish to see amplified.
Bring in the Light!
Bring in the Light for yourself. Bring in the Light for everyone else. Combat those who would plunge you headlong into darkness with Light. Surround them, nurture them, love them. Bring them out of it. Surround them with so much Light that the darkness within them disappears, that the dark void within them is filled with Light and they are reconnected to their Divine source, and can think and act clearly and lovingly and with respect for all.
Michael (returning to a clairvoyant link):
I’ve got to go to the Persian Gentleman as we conclude this and…
… he is showing me a book which he says is the book of life for each person on Earth. Every person has, relatively speaking, a book of their life and it is as though you could see, if the book was open, a pen writing each word as each person lives each second, recording what has happened to them.
And he says there have been other dark times. If you would look in each book of life you would see that there’s been a combination of Light times and dark times. But there has not been, for millions of years, a time as testing as this one. And he is encouraging each soul on Earth to consciously write each word of Light at the moment, not darkness. To elevate themselves in everything they do – from getting up in the morning, to eating, to sleeping, to joining with friends, to working – to infuse every aspect of their life, of their life’s book, with Light.
Michael (once more in a trance state; now allowing the Persian Gentleman to communicate directly):
The Persian Gentleman:
How can I make this a Light situation? Can I make this a Light situation today by not arguing with someone? Can I make this a Light situation today by trying to understand someone in a better way – in a Divine way? Can I make this a Light situation by simply beaming Light into this situation, silently, without anyone knowing, to lift the vibrations? It is time to consciously write Light into that book.
And all the aspects of life that have formerly seemed so important up to this point for many people – the job, the material objects, the security, the location, the perception of others as to how they view you – all these things are no longer of importance. They never were, but at this point they have lost their meaning totally. All that matters is writing Light into that book and writing Light into the book of everyone else on Earth. Make no mistake. Nothing else at this point matters. The airwaves… the amount of information that is generated across this planet? Meaningless, meaningless… meaningless! We watch it and we see the entanglement of communications, the thick entanglement, the greyness, the darkness of communications. Meaningless!
The only power that has any meaning and any worth on Earth at the moment is the Light you have within you – and your ability to turn to that Light, through volition. That is what is needed at the moment! To say: ‘Today I will work with the Light despite what is happening around me …because of what is happening around me, I will play my part, in love. Lovingly, I WILL BRING IN THE LIGHT.’
I give you this book to remind you that you are writing your own history, that you are recording what happens to you, that there is a book you will look at one day – in whatever form, whether as a book or as a vibration of energy – but you will look at it. And you will look at everything you have done in this particular life. Will it be a good read? What sort of book is it? Is it a mystery in that you have not investigated the spiritual aspects of your life? Is it a thriller in that you are attempting to achieve something material and chase after it? Or is it a happily-ever-after story, which at this point you have decided to infuse with Light, so that every word you write is a happy one, is a loving one for all humanity, for all life and for yourself? Remember the book. It doesn’t seem possible, does it, from your earthly point of view that each day there is a recording of all that you do and there is a greater meaning to all that you do and a greater consequence to all that you do, because you have been plugged into this Godless society, into this void.
But a void can be filled, and it needs to be filled with Light as do each of you each day. We attempt to do that. We spend a great deal of our time doing that. As my friend, my brother, says, ‘If you follow the pathway of Light, then it becomes easier for us to connect with you and to work with you and, through you, to illuminate others’.
So, remember the book, please. Remember that we are there, please, and remember that everything you see around you is a temporary construct – physically, materially – temporary. It is an illusion. It can be repainted, redecorated, as you choose to repaint and redecorate it. But nobody is going to do that for you. I cannot do that for you. The souls in our soul group cannot do that for you. We can work with you but you have to choose to do it. You have to choose to do it. And, as my brother said, when you do this, choose to do this, you are legion; you never work alone. Millions of souls work with you and you have the connection to Divinity, to the Light that flows through and is everything. You are never alone.
Because of the dark spots we can only maintain communication for a certain time. So, we close with our love, with our respect, with our encouragement and, even if you are not aware of us, we are aware of you and we are there and we’ll be there until the next time we communicate.
The God that is within you blesses you.
We bless and love you.
